well after much research and reading for days on end, breaking it down and counting all the dollars, it looks like I now have a jk plan. 3.5 rock krawler lift with lower adjustable ca's, and trac bar. 35 inch tires and flag fenders for future bigger tires as build proggresses. and yes i know i will need to address the front ds first, then prob the rear, new gear, gussets, ect... thanks everyone for your help and knowledge. I'll post before and after.
